ACTOR / SINGER - SONGWRITER / Entreprenuer
Yoyoyo. My name is Tommy Florio. I'm 22 years old and I live in a tiny beach town in New Jersey called Ocean City. It is the epitome of the t.v. show Rocket Power or the movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High. No joke. Just imagine the same lifestyle of typical southern California beach towns and plant it in Ocean City, New Jersey. They're identical and timeless. I recently graduated from Fordham University's Gabelli School of Business in May of 2015. I loved living in New York. It was a completely different lifestyle, and polar opposite to anything that I was ever used to. Looking back I was so enamored with the idea of throwing myself at every possible opportunity I could think of just so I could figure out what was me, what wasn't me, and everything I was capable of. I really feel that everything in my life has been so surreal, not to sound pertinacious but life becomes more like a movie when you step outside of your comfort zone. I believe that is truly when life begins. I'm a singer songwriter, an actor, an entrepreneur, and I love skateboarding. I'm just really into being creative, all the time. I can't sit still, I love people, and I just love being happy. Anyway's welcome to my website and I hope I'm some what interesting to you. Alright alright alright.
ABC 20/20 SEGMENT ON KEVIN O'LEARY FROM SHARK TANK AND HIS SALES CHALLENGE
In May of 2015 I was blessed with an opportunity to send a pitch video to ABC so I could be part of ABC's 20/20 segment on Kevin O'Leary's Sales Challenge. This golden opportunity was meant for senior entrepreneurial students who had an entrepreneurial vision. For the past 3 years I have been working on an idea that finally lead me to make something of it. CreateMate is a social marketplace for creative individuals to create, connect, and collaborate on jobs and projects anywhere. Out of thousands of students from some of the top Universities in the country I was chosen to be part of the Sales Challenge with Kevin O'Leary from Shark Tank.
